Awards for Institute of Fundraising 2008
The Bullwood Project was commissioned to develop awards for the
winners at this years Institute of Fundraising Awards October 2008.
John Hamilton, Chair of the Bullwood Project was invited to submit ideas for the awards for 2008 and submitted
three designs, one of which, a 'sail', was chosen.
This commission builds on the relationship the Bullwood Project has with
the Institute of Fundraising, following the commissioning of awards for the same event in 2007.
The commissioned award is made from spalted beech, i.e. beech
that has pale and dark areas separated by pencil like lines. John felt that the sail shape provided
the best form to show the beauty of spalting and the wood is simply polished with beeswax. The 'sails' are mounted on green slate from Cumbria. The slate is heavy enough to enable the sails to be mounted upright
and symbolises the colour of the sea.
